Design Week Portland exists to connect designers with each other and the city.

We connect, inform, promote, and catalyze designers and aspiring designers through events, research, and service. We showcase the value and importance of high quality design and its far-reaching effects on matters of civic, cultural, social, and economic relevance. We are the central address of greater Portland’s design community.

Design Week Portland will always be a magical, celebratory event, when the city comes alive with design. But it’s time for this organization to serve the larger community year-round. We want to map Portland’s creative ecosystem and make it a public resource, to stoke collaboration and feed the city’s innovative ferment. We want to build on the civic and educational programs we’ve been prototyping over the years. We want to provide our events, connections, and platform year-round.

But growth takes time, work, and resources. We need your help. By supporting our efforts to deepen the services we provide, you can make this vision a reality. This is about all of us. Together.
